Know More about this tourYour informative and knowledgeable guide will collect you from your Sydney hotel to commence your small group deluxe tour into the heart of the Blue Mountains World Heritage region.
The Blue Mountains National Park is one of seven national parks that make up the Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Area. This wonderland of sandstone outcrops, deep ravines and hazy blue eucalypt forests boasts luxury retreats and the worlds steepest railway. Today your guide will take you off the beaten track to visit remote lookout locations and discuss the history, flora and fauna of this magnificent region.
The first stop is Featherdale Wildlife Park where you will arrive and meet the native Australian animals. Here you can hand-feed kangaroos (additional cost), and observe wallabies and emus.
Departing from Featherdale, commence the drive to the Blue Mountains traveling towards a picturesque lookout over the Jamison Valley. With spectacular views over the Jamison Valley this beautiful lookout is the first stop.
Continue to Eaglehawk Lookout, a remote lookout point away from the crowds for views of the famous Three Sisters.

The character of the Three Sisters changes throughout the day and throughout the seasons as the sunlight brings out the magnificent colors. Here your guide will discuss the legends behind this famous rock formation and time available for you to take some great photos.
